Lightroom 6/CC: Map module keyboard shortcuts broken/inconsistent (Win 8)

The keyboard shortcuts in the map module are inconsistent/broken. The user documentation ( does not list any keyboard shortcuts for the map module, however, the old keyboard shortcuts +, = , - work sometimes (these used to work correctly in previous versions of Lightroom). It seems that the keyboard shortcuts work when you have given focus to certain UI elements before using them. For example, when the last click was on the toolbar (any component of the grey bar that has the zoom slider and Map Style), the +, = and - allow you to zoom in and out, however once you have panned on the map (clicked and dragged on the map), they no longer work.

Tested under Lightroom version: 6.1 [ 1025654 ] / Windows.

Steps to reproduce:
1) Load the map module.
2) Pan on the map using the mouse.
3) Press +, = or -. (The map will not zoom in or out).
4) Click on the tool bar [the grey bar with map style selector].
5) Press +, = or -. (The map will zoom in or out).
6) Pan on the map using the mouse.
7) Press +, = or -. (The map will not zoom in or out).
8) Select an image from the film strip, by clicking on it with the mouse.
9) Press +, = or -. (The map will zoom in or out).

This is an essential feature for me as I must use a trackball which does not have a scroll wheel and the zoom slider is too slow (click pan, click zoom click pan, click zoom vs click pan + '+' or '-').

Thanks for your help.
